Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Franconia / Middle Franconia / Rothenburg / St. Jacob's Church (St. Jakobskirche)
Finally finished in 1484, St. Jacob's Church (St. Jakobskirche) took more than 150 years to build. This church contains the famous Holy Blood altarpiece of woodcarver Tilman Riemenschneider, with images of the Last Supper and other important biblical icons. Some stained-glass windows here date back to 1350, and the organ is impressive. Snag an audio guide for an explanation of the art and history or for a spiritual tour discussing the passion of Christ. This church has a connection as far west as Galicia, Spain, via the medieval pilgrimage route called the Way of St. James.

日本語の冊子と絵葉書がもらえます。その絵葉書は15世紀の絵があって、とても素敵です。 中は、どうということもなく。。有料でした。 more »You can get japanese booklets and postcards. The postcard has a 15th century painting and is very nice. Inside, there is no question. It was a fee.
A Rothenburg puoi visitare una chiesa particolare che non ha una facciata. L'entrata avviene da una porta laterale. Questa singolarità non ne pregiudica la bellezza.

Her style enhances its beauty and visiting it becomes exciting.
Beautiful Lutheran Church. 2,5€ for individual admission and 2€ for groups of 10+. A must see.
The architecture is outstanding. I did not go inside as I was busy doing an overview tour of Rothenburg. The detail in the exterior was outstanding. I imagine the interior stained glass windows were dramatic.
